Ok, so this center has one of my favorite stores, Sandstrom, a leather company. It also has a Kazuri store. These two stores are true quality products. There is a supermarket which is reasonable, but I prefer the Nakamut, I think the selection is better. There are some some good places to eat, to include a small bakery upstairs. A few tour compainies which I cannot speak to because I have not used them. There is an Art Gallery for those looking for higher end art, by African Artist. An internet gallery is there for those of you needing to check your emails or do work. If you are looking for smaller items, I suggest you purchase from the locals along the roadway. Check the prices in a store first, that will give you a benchmark to bargain against. Good luck, and happy shoping.

Lots of souvenirs and tour shops located here plus a supermarket, bank and a sports bar. Sports bar is great and shows football matches plus serves food throughout the day. The shops are on the pricey side but when you wander in you will not get hassled and are left to browse. The prices are on the labels so you can see how much it costs compared to street vendors.

There is nothing special about this particular shopping center. It is useful if you want to visit a bank, or a supermarket. Other stores are pretty sub-standard and they are not worth the trip. The other shopping center near-by (CHANDARANA Shopping Center) is more suited for tourists looking for local souvenirs.

Visited the pharmacy, the pharmacist was very helpful, also stocked many products.
Visited the bank, they exchange USD at a great rate, 3% higher than our hotel.
The supermarket stocked many products, if they don’t have it you don’t need it..
Also many specialty shops for those that like to wind shop..

Very disappointed with this place. I wanted to come here to buy some souvenirs and also an extra bag for the plane (bought too many things in Kenya). The prices they charge are crazy. One of the shops asked for 19,000 Ksh ($190!!) for a simple canvas duffle bag, which shouldn't cost more than $20.... Most of the souvenir shops are also very overpriced and it takes a lot of haggling to bring down to a reasonable price.

The supermarket is good for essentials. It’s a few Ksh more for everything but cheaper overall than a Tuk Tuk up to Naivas. Lots of ex pats in the area. Piri Piri is a great place for food or a drink. The souvenir shops are very expensive compared to the sellers on the beach etc. Great coffee shop. Also a great fruit and veg shop hidden behind the coffee shop.

It’s got the basic stuff. You can buy stuff, eat, shop for souvenirs and convert your money. But nothing too exciting.

It was ok when we needed some water and fruits but nothing much else to look at.
It looked like it used to be a lively place but not now...

I wouldn't get too overexcited and 'shopping centre' is possibly a little misleading. Its a small collection of shop including souvenir shops, an ATM, grocery store, sushi place and a few cafes. Very useful if your resort is nearby and you fancy popping out for a few things though!
